It seems to me that there are some huge egos around the place ....Monday morning a blown up league ladder highlighting the position of the team on all the walls ,if it were me on every wall in the building including the crapper.

I completely agree with Innsanienk.

The excuses are laughable.

Seems had our fans are not fussed either. Oh why bother whinging. Oh Taylor's mate died so ill give them a pass mark. Robbie was away. Boo Hoo.

No wonder the club is going no where. Players going through the motions and fans accepting mediocrity.

Mate it's ok if you're upset. I am choosing not to be. I don't want my headstone to read Father, Husband, Wests Tigers fan as my legacy.

Hold on to the phone.
Who said we took Manly lightly? I thought it was Teddy, maybe he did.

Is he speaking for the other 16 players. Did they take Manly lightly or just Teddy.
Did anyone take them lightly - maybe he was looking for a reason they got beat and has hit on the idea that MAYBE they took them lightly - he is 22 what does he know about making excuses.
Did JT use that as an excuse, did he use his friends passing as an excuse or Mayers resignation as an excuse. NO!!!!!!

Your all getting your knickers in a not over nothing. There are no excuses.

We got beaten by a better team on the night.
Hopefully we'll get it together better next week.

[quote="foreveratiger"]To me this tells me that they have a young mentality and are a long way from being professionals.

This is all part of the learning process. They are mostly kids and are learning the hard way. Unfortunately, there is no our way to learn. Buying players is not the answer.

I don't think they took Manly lightly. I think they just weren't good enough. Tedesco probably said words he didn't mean. You hear the same crap all the time. Did he say the manly forwards laid a platform? Or we need to put our best foot forward? Or maybe go back to training and work hard for next week? He just screwed up. His mouth got in the way of what he should have said. This team is years off where Manly is at, and Manly are last.

I thought it was an interesting interview Woods gave post game when he downplayed the comeback saying it was far too late and that the damage was done before half time. He said he hadn't trained all week with the side and sort of indicated he was not happy with their prep...even distancing himself from it.

To say you took a side packed with experienced, international standard talent lightly is remarkable. I can't believe it. It is a very, very bad sign. They have no right to be so arrogant. I'm super disillusioned with that.

Probably not the best choice of words,Souths may have thought the same thing last week yet the better team WT won on that night as did the SE last night.

Makes me think that maybe our whole club and team are a "very unprofessional outfit"and things must change if it's to get better.....but who and what do we change,we have a new coach,board,football operations manager and now looking for a new CEO..

Maybe a new ATTITUDE adjustment could do the trick...in other words they all need to pull their heads in and wake up to themselves...we don't need our star players telling us that they took a very talented team " lightly" or the coach telling us training was slack through the week... :crazy
You may see me struggle...but you will never see me quit... :D

Some sanity at last. Talk about an over reaction. That was a pretty good game of footy that we lost due to a bad passage of play. Getting beaten by Many at Brookvale is hardly unacceptable and the nature of this competition is that on any given day any team if they play well enough can beat another regardless of where they sit on the ladder. Last year I was embarrassed by many of our teams performances, Friday night was disappointing to lose but like most games this year we were in it. I dont know who Teddy was referring to, but there is never any evidence in his play to suggest that he ever takes the opposition lightly. Simply a generic response to a loss, that has made been made into mountain out of a molehill.

I think it was just BS spin. Surely they didn't think they would go to Brookvale against a team with that talent and win easily.

Do you know what spin is?
something you say to try and convince ppl to believe you.
why say it if it's not true?
Beginning of the game certainly showed it to be true
